The Superintendent or designee is empowered to close the district schools or to dismiss them early in the event of hazardous weather or other emergencies which threaten the health or safety of students and personnel.  If conditions affect only a single school, only that school shall be closed.


The Superintendent shall weigh these factors and shall take action to close the schools only after consultation with traffic and weather authorities.  Students, parents, and staff shall be informed early in each school year of the procedures which will be used to notify them in case of emergency closing.  When schools are closed for emergency reasons, staff members shall comply with Board Policy in reporting for work.
